Director James Gunn (R), actor Dave Batista (L) and actress Zoe Saldana attend a press conference of the American movie "Guardians of the Galaxy" held in Singapore's Marina Bay Sands Expo on July 10, 2014 as part of their South East Asia media tour. In two weeks of worldwide release, the film has also made $269 million overseas. Disney distribution chief Dave Hollis said the film can now boast of the 17th biggest domestic opening of all time, and he touted the box office clout of both Disney and Marvel. It made roughly $124 million in its second weekend internationally, after opening major markets like China, Russia, and Korea. That total means that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has now brought in over $11 billion worldwide. No box office data was given for Argot Pictures' documentary Sacred and Well Go USA's romantic comedy This Is Not What I Expected. Not 'Fast & Furious.' It's 'Guardians of the Galaxy'. Still, the $145 million estimate, courtesy of Box Office Mojo, is a solid start to the summer movie season, with the movie earning an impressive $33,368 per-screen average from 4,347 theaters.
